Synopsis: In 1865, while helping her family keep their Virginia farm going through the end of the Civil War, twelve-year-old Cassie meets a Confederate deserter and a Yankee prisoner of war and tries to discover who has been stealing from the farm.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-7-The final year of the Civil War has brought hard times to much of the South, including the Willis homestead in southern Virginia. Day-to-day problems are commonplace, but nothing could prepare the family for the devastating news of oldest brother Jacob's death in battle. Then, while grieving privately in the nearby woods, 12-year-old Cassie is terrorized by a crazed and violent Confederate deserter, escaping only because of her dog's courage. A search indicates the man has moved on, but after a short time, things inexplicably begin to go missing from the house and farm. Cassie wonders if the family is really safe, and determines to find out why she often feels she is being watched. The puzzle is worked out in an entertaining, if lightweight, plot, offering enjoyable leisure reading. The appended six-page historical view of 1865 gives an appealing, concise glimpse at a pivotal year in U.S. history, accompanied by excellent black-and-white and full-color illustrations from the period.
